Invite a friend to join us for worship at 10:30 a.m.

For God so loved the world that Jesus was sent to give us a second chance at doing life.
The world includes all of creation, not just church people, not just our friends and families,
not just our community, but everyone.

Can you follow God’s lead and find someone outside of your circle to love this week?

John 3:14-21

Teacher Spotlight

Debbie Grimm

For the next several weeks we would like to share a little with you about each of our wonderful teachers. This week we feature our awesome PreK teacher, Debbie Grimm. Debbie retired from teaching 2nd, 3rd,and 4th grade for Taylor ISD after 31 years. This is her sixth year teaching PreK here at FUMC. Debbie and her husband, Teddy, have three children and four grandchildren. Debbie serves as the organist and pianist at Taylor Brethren Church and dedicates much of her time every year to the Taylor Relay for Life team. Thank you, Debbie, for everything you do every week to prepare our PreK class for Kindergarten and to share God’s love with us!



Weekly Challenge
In cleansing of the temple, Jesus is teaching us about the purging that needs to take place in our own lives, our group gatherings, and our places of worship — keeping it holy and sacred.

What does Jesus need to flip the tables on and get a whip to drive out?
During this Lenten season, invite Jesus to come into your life, your home,
your gathering and worship spaces to purge and purify what doesn’t belong.

John 2:13-22



If you have identified Jesus as the Messiah, then this Lenten season, don’t get distracted by other voices and paths. Don’t take the easy and popular route. Rather, pick up your cross and follow the path of Christ, even when it’s awfully heavy and inconvenient many times. At the cross is Christ, our life-line, our redeemer and God.

What is distracting you from following Christ? What self-interest can you let go in order to focus more on Jesus’ call to follow?

Mark 8:27-38


Challenge: Lent is about life in the wilderness and our search for God. In the wilderness, we’re constantly tempted by evil forces and beasts. Nonetheless, we must remember that angels are also present, empowering us to continue moving towards God. How might you use your wilderness experience to witness Christ to someone else?
Mark 1:9-15


Challenge: Jonah was very upset that God showed mercy to the people of Nineveh. He wanted God to destroy them. Yes, Jonah had no problem receiving God’s grace repeatedly. We judge others based on their actions, but ourselves based on our intentions. We start comparing sins and we always come out deserving grace, but not them. When we think God agrees with us all the time, we can be certain we’ve created God in our own image. God’s mercy and grace is not dependent on our preference, bu is available to everyone. Who can you show grace to this week? Jonah, Chapter 4
